GOVERNMENT APPROVES DRAFT AGREEMENT ON IMPORTING CHINESE WORKERS

The Government has approved the draft of an agreement to be signed with China to import labor from there to work in specified areas.  Minister for Social Welfare and Labor T.Gandi has been asked to submit the draft to the National Security Council. China had tentatively agreed at the last meeting of the inter-government commission to send workers, provided their security and interests were protected by a proper agreement. There have been reports of Mongolian employers and labor contractors employing foreign workers illegally so that their rights, such as housing, are ignored.
The draft allows only skilled workers with professional training to take up employment in Mongolia, with permission from a concerned state organization which will verify an employer’s needs. The Ministries of Mineral Resources and Energy, of Social Welfare and Labor, and of Road, Transportation and Urban Development will publish data on economic entities’ requirements of both domestic and foreign workers.
